ABOUT BILL BLAGG
To say that BILL BLAGG has had a magical life would be no exaggeration. He received his first professional magic book from his great-grandfather, which eventually led to building magic tricks with his dad. These early beginnings paved the way for what is now known as The Magic of Bill Blagg. After years of endless practice and persistence, Bill professionally launched his magic performing career in 1996, at the ripe age of sixteen. In just two short years of professional performance, Bill developed a stage presence that made him a stand out in the magic community, due in part to his off-the-cuff personality and his high energy performance style.
He chose to put his skills to the test in 1998, by entering the adult stage competition at the Abbott Magic Get Together in Colon, MI, which is also hailed as the magic capital of the world. Magic had been Bill’s life for over twelve years, he had performed hundreds of shows, and it all hinged on a single, five minute routine; his dancing handkerchief. He had just turned eighteen, barely old enough to enter the competition, and he was about to make magic history by becoming the youngest contestant to ever win the prestigious event.
Following his win, Bill never looked back. While intensely studying to earn a degree in performing arts and communications at Carthage College in Kenosha, WI, Bill was busy planning and staging his next big venture; his own ninety-minute, grand-scale magic and illusion show he called “Beyond Imagination.” After graduating with honors, Bill took his illusion production on the road to select cities throughout the Midwest. He virtually sold out all of the shows, with his unique brand of grand-scale magic and illusion. Entertainment Weekly summed up Bill’s appeal by saying, "Bill Blagg has a charm and style all his own; he’s definitely the best kept secret in magic!" Today, Bill is one of the nation's top touring illusionists. His theatrical brand of magic thrills thousands of people every single year. Bill's live performances leave people in complete disbelief as he creates the impossible in a way only he can do.
Bill prides himself in performing new, never-before-seen illusions such as the world's only rideable hoverboard. He is also known for instantly teleporting across theaters, squishing his body from 6 feet to 6 inches tall, passing through the blades of an industrial fan, and much more!
Bill constantly receives standing ovations from those who experience his one-of-a-kind talents. He looks forward to sharing his blend of magic, personality and performance with you!
We are pleased to welcome Bill Blagg and his team to the stage to present Bill’s latest magical production “The Magic of Bill Blagg LIVE! Sit back, relax and enjoy the magic and illusions of the nation’s top magical star…Bill Blagg!
